Solving The 140-Year-Old Mystery Of Vanishing Ships

Humans are a little addicted to mystery. We crave mysteries, but most of all, we yearn for the release of solving them. Whenever a great enigma erupts, everyone comes forward with theories, assumptions and hypotheses. Mysteries drive scientists mad and never abandon the collective memory… Some are never solved, some take centuries to begin to advance and some, like the one I present today, are kindly unraveled to the bewilderment of all the curious eyes of the world.

During the 19th-century two sailing ships disappeared somewhere near Australia. When they were found, in the year 2015, they were among the most remote shipwrecks in the world—yet the questions "Why?", "Where?" and "How?" remained a riddle until a month ago... The revelation? Beautifully simple.
